Great video, tiny microscope
Every company needs a video! On a hot summer’s day in 2016 ioLight’s Andrew Monk went pond dipping in Whitchurch’s beautiful Millenium Meadow with Mark Harman of Red Book Productions. The result was ioLight’s Product Demonstration video, which shows Andrew using the ioLight pocket microscope in the field.
A couple of months later, and several degrees cooler, Mark and Andrew met up again to discuss how they made the microscope video and how it has helped ioLight’s business.
You can watch their conversation in episode 64 of #TheVideoShow.
Lab resolution in your pocket
The ioLight video field microscope is the world’s first portable high resolution microscope. It delivers beautiful images and videos from the microscope directly onto a tablet or phone so that the whole team can see and share them. Image quality is similar to that of a laboratory microscope, but the ioLight microscope fits into your pocket, so you can take it anywhere.
The ioLight pocket microscope is already being used by Cambridge and Exeter universities, Bayer, The Eden Project and many other researchers and teachers that want to take science into the field or seminar room without compromising on quality.
In the video, ioLight’s Andrew Monk explains his personal passion for communicating science. The ioLight microscope is an invaluable tool for STEM education because it is so portable and simple to use but still delivers great quality images that are easy to paste into homework or Nobel Prize winning reports. Young scientists particularly love seeing images and videos from the microscope on the screen of a tablet, which is less complicated than a traditional laboratory microscope and less expensive too.
Watch #TheVideoShow to see how Mark and Andrew got on making the video and how easy it is to use compared with a laboratory microscope.
